Just Like Magic

Learning new things for little ones, that's just what it's like - magic.  My youngest recently received his first science kit for his birthday.  I'm sure he had no clue what it was when he opened the package, but when we broke into it the other day to do our first experiment, he was hooked!!  I used the January Fresh Start kit to document this "magical" moment.

The layout is fairly neutral in color, with lots of white space, but I chose to simulate the idea of an experiment bubbling over a beaker with these fun sprays of color out to the right of the page.  I punched two different sized stars, as well as some small circles in shades of teal, pink, and yellow.  I also added in some splatters of ink as well.  The colored sections are divided by some hand-stitching in grey.

For the title work I combined those fun sparkly white Thickers in the kit, with a die-cut word from patterned paper.  Right below that you will see a "True Story" tag peeking out from a glassine bag behind the photo.  The journaling tag is tucked away in the bag, but easily pulls out to read my story :)
